Seth

SETH (Heb. shēth, “appointed,” i.e., “substituted”) Adam’s third son; father of Enosh (Gen.4.25-Gen.4.26; Gen.5.3-Gen.5.8). His name signifies that he was considered a “substitute” for Abel (Gen.4.25). His birth recalled man’s tragic loss of the divine image (Gen.5.1-Gen.5.2). He became the founder of the line of faith (Gen.4.26; Luke.3.38).
